Pre-sales begin on 30′ villas by Darling Homes

The many new facades Darling has designed for Lakeside fall into three categories: Mediterranean, European, and Classical.

The many new facades Darling has designed for Lakeside fall into three categories: Mediterranean, European, and Classical. In all, there are 26 elevations from which to choose.

The long-anticipated news has broken. Sales of lots at Lakeside have begun, starting with those for the 30-foot villas by Darling.

“Darling Homes has done a superb job of developing a new line of villa homes that embraces the Lakeside lifestyle,” said town planner Dan Quinto of Roaring Brook Development Corp.

“Everything they submitted was designed specifically for this project.”

That was no accident.

“We recognized that Lakeside — with its energetic city setting and many recreational opportunities  — will attract buyers who expect something out of the ordinary,” said Christine Kenny, marketing manager for Darling Homes in Dallas.

Three different style categories — Mediterranean, European, and Classical — will be available in a total of 26 different elevations.

Homebuyers can choose from a variety of color schemes.

The roofs of the Mediterranean villas will feature MonierLife barrel tile. Some of the Classical models will include metal roofs over the porches. Others will offer painted brick.

“The painted brick is a classic look,” Quinto said. “You see it often in more established neighborhoods. It will help distinguish Lakeside villas from those anywhere else.”

The seven new floor plans offer a great deal of flexibility and range from approximately 2,100 to 2,600 square feet.

Villa prices start in the $300,000s.

In Phase I, 40 villa lots are available. (An additional 26 will come on-line in Phase II.) All are alley loaded, so garages will not be visible from the street.

A model home is expected to be completed in October and will be located on Sandy Lane at Loma Alta (just west of the northern roundabout at Lakeside).

“Darling has exceeded our expectations,” said Quinto. “Their villas will have great drive-up appeal and  enhance the community-centric, pedestrian-friendly atmosphere at Lakeside.”

Interested parties should contact Darling’s Shelly Wilson at 214-683-2104 or Taylor Humphrey at 214-335-3934.

Corrrection:

The first word of the second sentence of this story has been revised from “pre-sales” to “sales” to clarify the fact that homebuyers may call to purchase lots. “Pre-sales” remains in the headline to indicate that no model home is yet available for buyers to inspect.
